Adults learn differently than children: 5 tips

Discounts for your success (advertising)!

People can learn into old age. At the same time, adults learn by no means worse than children, but simply differently.

  1. Understand: Instead of just trying something out and practically learning on the side, many first want to understand what they are learning. This is why input is an important part of working with adults. It offers the opportunity to impart a technical understanding as well as practical knowledge to the participants so that everyone can “grasp” the topic.
  2. Let go: Adults, unlike children, have learned inhibitions. They usually only think about something before they do it. Many adults already have an idea of ​​how something should go; sometimes they have to let go of this performance before they can learn.
  3. Build on existing knowledge: Adults want to build on already existing knowledge. Therefore, from the outset, you should take the experience and practical knowledge of the participants as a basis.
  4. Practical: Adult learners learn particularly well if they can recognize a concrete and immediately feasible help or relief for their professional life.
  5. Own experience: Adults have their own experiences and ideas for solutions. Therefore, it is important to actively involve the participants and to encourage them to participate with their personal expertise.

Everyone learns in his own way

Whether learning to the desired Success of course also depends on the participants themselves. What prior knowledge do they bring with them? Are you rested, healthy, in a good mood or have you just had a difficult one Projects or a bad cold? In addition, everyone has their own learning pace and learning experience. As you can already guess: Learning is not just learning, but a very individual process.

1. Same learning conditions - different successes?

Consider the following situation: They give different animals the task of climbing onto a tree. A monkey will master this task excellently. An elephant does not, however, although he, like the monkey, also has four limbs.

It's similar with humans. Participants in seminars achieve very different learning successes with the same learning conditions, because they have different prior knowledge, a different one Motivation and bring along individual skills.

2. Different learning types

Everyone has their own way of learning. Some can remember content well when they read about it, others when they listen to an expert, and others learn best when they write or share information with others.

The learning material enters into our memory through the sense organs involved. Now the individual sense organs are differently pronounced with each person, which leads to different learning types depending on the type. One differentiates auditive, visual, communicative and motor learning types. Since there are very few people who can only learn about a sensory perception, it is good to have as many senses as possible.

3. This is the best way to talk about learning types

The following is an overview of how you can best address the senses of each type of learning.

You can add content e.g. B. explain using a sketch (visual), present a topic (auditory), talk about it with the participants (communicative), accompany what is said with gestures and/or a exercise or do an experiment (motor skills).

4. Connect to familiar

Did you know that our Brain hardly makes a difference between what it really perceives and what it remembers or imagines? You can take advantage of this by repeatedly docking on to the memories of the participants.

For example, say B. “You have certainly experienced the following situation before…” Then tell an incident that is familiar to the participants and in which everyone has the freedom to follow their own memories. You can pack your learning objectives well into these examples.

5. Learn with all the senses

Everything that we have experienced, because we have smelt, felt, or seen, or what has been told to us, combined with these sensory experiences, is a better expression of our memory. Therefore, use the power of words and memories, and consciously build sensory perceptions in case examples or anecdotes that tell you.

So also tell us how it smelled in a place, how warm or cold it was there or whether a color stood out in particular. The more fields of perception in the brain are involved, the more mental connections can be made. This in turn allows you to Attention and learning motivation of the participants increase and achieve greater learning success.
